QBE Insurance is one of the world’s leading international insurers and reinsurers. QBE offers commercial, personal and specialty products and risk management solutions to help people and businesses manage risks. QBE operates in 3 geographic-based operating divisions (North America, International and AUSPAC) and employs 12,000 + people.
QBE European Operations (QBE UK & Europe), like any insurance firm has various processes across departments such as claims, underwriting, credit control, re-insurance. Volume of requests to these processes are huge. Most of the processes involve repetitive steps, manual data load and shift between multiple applications. Time taken by user to perform these repeatable processes were high which increased processing time and delayed delivery.
As part of its digital transformation program, QBE needed a way to free up employees’ time so they could focus on delivering greater value for customers–reducing manual tasks, benefitting the insurer, and boosting customer satisfaction in the process.
Coforge assisted QBE European Operations (QBE UK & Europe) by automating 40+ processes across claims, credit control, underwriting and re-insurance departments using Pega Robotics in a phased manner
These processes include reading and extracting data from documents/emails, opening, and filing emails, and performing calculations in various applications. Applications include claims management system, policy centre, payment systems, document management system and interact with windows, web-based applications.
RPA bots are scheduled and on completion, pass status of execution of each record to a human through email & reports, so employees are put to work where it matters most – for example, resolving an exception from report. Using Pega Robotics, claims handlers were able to free up hundreds of hours per week, while bots across both teams automate, speed up processes, and ensure the right information is delivered to the right people. Not only are they saving insurers time, but customers too.
